Embrace the Food

European cuisine is rich and varied. Start off simple by creating French ratatouille, Italian pasta bolognese or Spanish paella; progress on to more complex Hungarian goulash or German schnitzel with just some research (plus basic ingredients from your grocery store). Recreate all the flavors of Europe in your own kitchen.


Explore Europe on Virtual Tour 

From Italy’s Colosseum to England’s Tower of London, there are countless incredible landmarks that you can virtually tour from your computer screen. Visit Google Earth to explore popular tourist spots or download one of the many travel apps for photos and videos of Europe’s breathtaking sites. For an extra challenge, why not embark on a virtual guided tour guided by professional guides!


Speak the Lingo

Nothing says, “I’m in Europe!” quite like being able to communicate in their native tongue. So take some time out of each day to brush up on some essential phrases – whether German, French or Spanish (or all three!), learning another language is an incredibly rewarding experience that will add authenticity to your holiday experience at home.


Travel to Inspire

Need something different? Why not plan a mini-trip? From Greek-style restaurants to local pubs with British decor, there are countless places that will transport you back to Europe without ever setting foot on a plane! Plus, this gives you the perfect opportunity to get creative and experience a unique staycation adventure like The Quoin Hotel‘s charming southern French ambience infused with contemporary luxury!


Celebrate Culture

Part of the joy of traveling is experiencing different cultures and customs of different places, and Europe doesn’t disappoint! Check out local cultural festivals and art galleries or attend an immersive European movie night at your local theater – or even better, plan an authentic European dinner party with friends – try classic dishes like paella, lasagne or goulash – plus don’t forget the wine!


Visit Art Galleries and Museums

One of the best ways to understand European culture is through art. From Madrid’s Prado Gallery and Paris’ Louvre Museum, to museums like Los Angeles’s Getty Center or New York City’s Museum of Modern Art – Europe-influenced galleries and museums can provide an intimate glimpse into its long history and traditions. If you can’t make it across the pond, don’t fret: plenty of European-influenced galleries exist all across America too – check out Getty Center or MOMA for examples of impressive European artwork collections.


Find all of Europe without leaving home with plenty of ways to experience its splendor without traveling far. From festivals and art galleries, to local restaurants with European cuisine, and even trying local recipes featuring European spices – you’re bound to create all your favorite European experiences right there in your own city. So grab yourself a baguette and bottle of French wine–you’re in for an unforgettable journey!
